Mara Train Station Cottage c. 1913

Close to disused railway tracks, our cottage is a modern, home-from-home comfortable self-contained accommodation. During the summer, we rent it on a weekly basis from Saturday to Saturday. We welcome you with a fresh home-made nutty brown loaf, butter, home-made jam, eggs and cream.

The Train Station sleeps 2-4. It has a large deck overlooking the peaceful Shuswap River, valley and mountains. In the off-season, there is a minimum 3-night stay. For more information and rates, click on Accommodation tab above.
